Mobile phones and other traffic offences

This section looks at the myriad of traffic offences. There are, literally 100’s of offences, prescribed in the Road Rules (NSW), and further offences in the Road Transport Act and four sets of regulations to that Act.

This section will, particularly, be a growing feast of information.

Perhaps the most topical offence in the calendar of offending is the issue of using a mobile phone whilst driving. Experts suggest that the distraction caused by using phones is akin to driving with the middle range prescribed concentration of alcohol, hence the increase in penalties.

Most offences in this area, but not all, will be dealt with via infringement notice. Only if you wish to take a matter to court will a court attendance notice issue. However, you need to carefully consider whether or not you take a matter to court, as a finding by a magistrate could result in a conviction and could result in a financial penalty much greater than that which attaches to the infringement notice.

If you have been charged with a traffic offence, or issued with an infringement notice, and you would like assistance to understand your options, J Sutton Associates, have a NSW Law Society recognised Accredited Specialist in criminal law, with decades of experience acting for people in these situations.
